The Lamplighter

Long ago there was a lamp at the center of town that everyone in the village used to keep their own lanterns lit. However, one day a young woman found that the lamp keeper had grown old and the light in the lamp had gone out. She set off into the forest to look for a light to bring back to the lantern. After quite a journey through the forest, the young woman found the light in the forest and brought it back to the village, sharing it with everyone she met along the way. This young woman then became the next lamplighter.

Today’s Purple Day Podcast is the audio from our Monday Storytime video. Storytime in the Schoolhouse is a nature-based, secular, inclusive membership for preschool-aged children and their families. Storytime families have access to five new videos a week as well as supportive curriculum and extension projects. We take the time to curate the songs, stories, and projects and give you more time to actually do these fun things with your child.
